Safety Project Planned For Hale, Gaines Counties

Contact: Dianah Ascencio

Phone: (806) 748-4472

Date: Nov. 4, 2020

SEMINOLE – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is ready to begin work on a $117,820 safety project to add flashing LED chevrons to locations along US 180 in Gaines County and I-27 in Hale County. Stripe-A-Zone, Inc., of Grand Prairie, Texas is the project contractor

The curves on I-27 in Abernathy and US 180 in east Seminole are part of the safety project to place the flashing chevrons—which are designed to guide drivers along curves, especially at night.

Work on the project is expected to begin on Tuesday, Nov. 10, on US 180 in Seminole then move onto I-27 on Wednesday, Nov. 11, with crews alternating work between the two locations. Motorists can expect various daily lane and shoulder closures. Drivers are asked to slow down and stay alert when entering the work zone for their safety and the safety of the workers.

The project is scheduled to be completed by mid- to late-December. Work will take place weather permitting.
